Last night I dreamt of the granddaughter whom I´ll never see,
The precious little girl, I shall never have & who may never be,
And in my dreaming I gave her, all I know & all I´ve ever had,
I showed her all of beauty, showed of only good & nothing bad.
In dreaming, I placed a coronet of “pretty,” upon her golden curls,
And within her innocent head, I bestowed the “worth of little girls”,
Upon her lips of rose-buds pink, I kissed the forever-ready smiles,
And upon those tiny shell-like feet, the urge to run for many miles.
Within her mind, I placed her confidence & abhorrence of the ire,
Hopefully I gave her good enough, so that she´d always be a trier,
And within her tiny beating heart, all the love she could endure,
Just knowing where she came from, she only ever could be pure.
And when from my dream I awakened & saw she was not real,
I knew her to be somewhere, someplace, that much I could feel,
So to you my little granddaughter, wherever you may actually be,
Angel, grandma is always waiting & you can always come to me.
